Fun In The Sun at Smart Workout
This warm-weather minded cardio and resistance routine incorporates exercises that mimic summertime activities. Stand on a Bosu ball to "surf," loop dynabands around your arms while "swimming," play beach volleyball with physio balls; all while the music of the Beach Boys sets a summertime vibe.
Even though you won’t need sunscreen, you’ll definitely feel the burn. So when it’s cold outside, warm up at Smart Workout! Sandra Partyka showed us these four moves:
• THE SURFER GLIDE (using the BOSU ball)
It challenges balance and coordination, while working the muscles in the lower body.
• ROW YOUR BOAT (using the resistance band)
This works the shoulders, obliques, and deltoids.
• BEACH VOLLEYBALL SERVE (using the physio-ball)
This works the quads, glutes, biceps and lats
• THE BACKSTROKE (using the physio-ball)
This works the hamstrings, and triceps.
